Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
Driving the car (2006 Chevy Cobalt Ls Coupe) a 'Power Steering' light went off, with a beep. Then, the steering wheel went hard and made it a struggle to turn. I'm an 18 year old girl. And i am no mistress in distress, with a black belt - and with the 'Power Steering' its nearly impossible to make a U-Turn. Checking online, apparently many people have had problems with this. Especially the 2005-06 models. I took it to the dealership, and they said the whole piece had to be replaced. This is because the steering is electronic - there's no steering fluid. Anyway, the piece costs around $900, and for the actual work its around $600. Coming to a total of around $1,500! My dad got the dealer guy to lower the price of the piece to $400, and a mechanic friend of his is willing to do the job for around $150. So now its $550. Either way, not many people are as luck as I, and this problem should'nt have been an issue in the first place. The car has 50,000 miles and this is the only problem I have with the car. I bought it used, its my first car. Excitement over the first car got the best of me, and i didn't pay attention to what i was buying. Now i'm paying the price for it. I'm happy wit the car though... I just hope there aren't any more problems with the car after this one is resolved.
Oh, we took it to AutoZone and when the guy did a check to see if there was anything wrong with the car, nothing came up. It was impossible to detect, that's why the entire piece has to be replaced.
They are common problem,auto zone can only scan powertrain cudes.this comes under steering and suspention.
